On Sunday night, heavy rain fell in a number of locations of the Dakshina Kannada (DK) district; in some places, the rain was accompanied by hailstones.

Strong winds and heavy rainfall were experienced in a number of places, including Sullia, Beltangady, Dharmasthala, Guruvayanakere, Uppinangady, Karaya Kalleri, Bandaru, Perne, Ilanthila, Puttur, Balnadu, Kadaba, Bantwal, B C Road, Subramanya, Panja, Vittal, Kanyana, Manjeshwar, Bayaru, and Balpa.

Even though it continued to be gloomy throughout the evening, Mangaluru City did not receive any rain. On Saturday night, nevertheless, rain fell in several areas late.

Large hailstones and a strong downpour continued for thirty minutes in Puttur. Ilanthila’s arecanut plantations were impacted, as rain interrupted internet and power supplies. Furthermore, the strong wind caused cement sheets from Kamala’s house in Bappalige to fly, while a falling tree partially damaged Shobha’s house.

At Parivarakana near Aletty village, a large tree fell across the Mani-Mysuru highway, momentarily obstructing traffic. Locals, Mescom employees, and Sullia police worked together to remove the tree and allow for normal traffic flow again.

A lot of rain also fell in Alangaru, Bilinele, Subramanya, Panja, Kaniyoor, and Kadaba. A coconut tree in Kombaru was struck by lightning, and a tree that fell on the Mardhala-Konaje connecting road struck an autorickshaw in Kenya.

One car overturned in Kudrebettu, Kalladka, on the B C Road-Addahole route due to poor road conditions. The situation was made worse by waterlogging on the roads as a result of heavy rain. Tausif was driving a Tata Nano automobile at a fast pace when it overturned, but he thankfully avoided getting hurt. Drivers and passengers in vehicles are experiencing inconvenience due to the absence of asphalt on the Kalladka service road.
